Celeste Beatty, the first Black woman brewery owner in America and founder of Harlem Brew; Chef Jenny Dorsey, interdisciplinary visual artist and professional chef; and Ashley Rose Young, Historian of the American Food History Project at the National Museum of American History will explore how creativity, ingenuity, and networking can create opportunities to level the field.

Required. General Admission $10; Members, Adults 65+, and Students $5.

Part of the 3rd annual MakeHER Summit, this Fresh Talk is presented by the museum’s Women, Arts, and Social Change public program initiative. The MakeHER Summit is a two-day celebration of women makers, artisans, and creative entrepreneurs in the DMV area. This year’s programming focuses especially on women in the culinary industry.

The Women, Arts, and Social Change public programs initiative is made possible through leadership gifts from Denise Littlefield Sobel, the Davis/Dauray Family Fund, the Revada Foundation of the Logan Family, and the Susan and Jim Swartz Public Programs Fund. Additional funding is provided by the Bernstein Family Foundation. This project is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
